parts. located on the northern tip of the san fransisco peninsula is one of those parks-the presidio. this three square mile green space was originally established as a fort by spain in 1776; where large gun batteries were built to protect the bay from a naval invasion. presidio was ceased by the us military in 1846 at the onset of the mexican american war and later served as an important us base to the vietnam war. congress ended the military use of the presidio in 1994 and made it part of the golden gate national recreation area. we met up with our guest hiker julie from indianapolis for her first visit to the city by the bay and her first look at this amazing park just minutes from downtown san fransisco. the presidio is also home to this hallowed ground; the first us national cemetary on the west coast. many soilders and sailors who gave their lives overseas in pacific battles rest here, overlooking san fransisco bay. after a solomn stroll we decided to head west along the bay area ridged trail and walked toward the sea cliffs of the presidio. what we're finding is kind of differ

leadership of president barack obama whether it was the presidio park way, transway terminal, completion of third street rail and all of that. in recent years when he served in the congress and now as the secretary of transportation. he knows full well the role that senator boxer played and he was a member in congress of the transportation committee and the consensus she is building in the senate on this is quite remarkable so i am honored to be here with senator feinstein and our colleagues and share in this for san francisco and what you see here mr. secretary is consent. our great mayor lee -- he is the consensus maestro and brings people together and he said "listen, listen" and we act upon the consensus of our community. it's about consensus. it's about community. it's about here comes the bus and now we can get on it, but it's also about all the things the mayor said. it's about the quality of our air. again sitting comfortably in other projects in california that secretary lahood hood worked so hard on. the two senators were instrumental in making better and we in the house

domestic violence case in the presidio which isn't the typical jurisdiction matter but more importantly i'm a husband and a father of a daughter and this is important and in light of the current events that have taken place it's important that the two commissions get together to affirm our commitment to combating domestic violence and protecting witnesses and candidly this couldn't be a better time. today i received the san francisco attorney, the magazine from the bar association, and the cover of the magazine is "domestic violence, not a cookie cutter approach" and they interviewed two attorneys and i know both but no prosecution interviewed, no police department involved in the interview, and it's essentially taking us back 10 steps. all of the hard work put in by the da's office and this article i was bothered by it and i think there should be response to the article and i think tonight is the first response and i think we are disturbed and it's like the knob hill gazette for lawyers but this was a bad article. >> thank you commissioner mazzucco. i would like to introduce nancy ro

transit, rail, high speed rail and terminal and presidio and others -- what is it? transit first? transit first. it's about jobs. it's about comcommerce. it's about quality of air. it's about quality of life and building consensus in america and by doing so and by listening and leadership from the white house we are able to be a model to the nation with projects of national significance so that other communities can follow our lead, and i join the mayor in seluting the leadership of president barack obama. without his leadership, his priorities, without the work that was done in appropriations committee and diane is a senior -- when i say senior i mean high ranking. i was a senior too so i take it as a complement but that's where a lot of this work is done so without president barack obama and his commitment to build america we wouldn't have this success today and it's a global vision but it has an impact on everyone that comes to san francisco and especially those that live in san francisco and makes a great difference in the lives of our friends in chinatown and we cel

, the largest population in the state was in san francisco. l.a. barely made a presidio. they had, like, 50 or 60 people. 90% of the population was in san francisco, and everyone down the peninsula is saying if they are in the county, san francisco has this huge population, we are going to have to go along with them, so they can't get off -- they carved it off. >> it looks like it is the richmond district, but a kind of shows what was on the west side town. a great deal of it was sam, and for that reason, people thought that the weather and the san -- it was really not a place that people wanted to live, and it was going to be very typical for san francisco -- very difficult for san francisco to expand west. >> if you look at the early maps, it was 3 miles wide by about 6 miles long, this huge sand dunes that just moved around. >> here is an 1875 map of the laguna. says along the side of the map, high sand hills between the pacific ocean and the like. by the way, this had actually opened directly into the ocean. >> lake merced had a high water level. since we paid over much of the city, the

at the presidio, i said i can't walk that much, i just had my knee replaced. melinda has been an incredible partner, it's a partnership between our partners in the u.s. attorney offices and our partners in state and local government. when i think about the hate crimes cases and the other cases i've done, i've made friends for life with local law enforcement officers, with local da's and local community leaders who have been our eyes and ears. when i look around this audience i really appreciate the fact you have all the ingredients of reform and improvement. i have had the privilege of serving in the federal government, as melinda described, i've had the privilege of serving in state government as a state cabinet official back in maryland, i've had the privilege of serving as a local elected official and governor -- once a local elected official, always a local elected official. what i learned from that is partnership is what it's all about. if you want to confront the most vexing problems, you have to bring people across an ideological spectrum, you have to include the business communi

presidio parkway project. right now, this is a temporary situation. you can see this new bridge, the old one right behind it with the original truck needs to be torn down. then they will build a twin bridge in its place alongside the other new one. at that point, traffic will no longer be crowded onto one bridge with movable median markers. >> currently while this bridge is carrying both directions of traffic there's not enough sight lines and merging distance. to put additional traffic on that southbound, there's just not enough room for cars to merge safely. >> reporter: it's not safe to ramp on right now with traffic going in both directions and it won't be ready until late 2015 when the entire project is complete. >> ultimately there will be another twin bridge built and three more tunnels and a whole new interchange. so there's a lot more that people will see in the coming months and the coming years. >> reporter: joe vazquez, cbs 5. >>> doing donuts on the 880. the sideshow that shut down the bay area interstate. >> i'm mike sugerman t
